Friday’s Question

Do we spend more time anticipating the miraculous that we miss the day to day joys?

Psalm 23:1-4

  Chapter Parallel Compare

The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.  He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

 

2 Corinthians 9:8

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

I don’t know about you, but I’m a dreamer.  I love to dream about the possibilities if………………..  We each dream about the future for different reasons.  I think for me, I dream because I feel my past was so heavily consumed with the evils of life that I didn’t have the knowledge of the good He was doing.  But what if my dreams are coming true right here/right now and I’m missing them because I am dreaming about what ever I have conjured  up in my head for the future.  Whatever I think will heavily consume my past.  And I’m not watching for how God is blessing me today.   So for me, I’m not going to STOP dreaming of the possibilities if………………  but the possibilities are going to be filled with the expected dreams of what God is doing right here/right now.  I can now see that even in the evils of my past, God was walking through them with me, marking out my path and watching me grow stronger in Him.

My dreams can never out shine the dreams that God has for me.

Lord Jesus, You are my dream come true today! Amen!
